Neglected blog...

Year 13 - Folios are due October 29th 4pm. 

Our students have been really busy. Here is a run down of what they have been up to lately;

Brooke's work lately has been examining careful and subtle ways of depersonalising a subject now using John Stezaker. This leads really well on from Duane Michels. 

While Samuel's most recent post is about David Hockney, the physical work he has been making is yet to explore this. I do like the images of his little brother, and panel one has worked very well so far. There is still significant editing to do over the next 3 and half weeks.

Dayna has worked on sequencing panels one and two very carefully and her final result is currently posted. Reflection and critique is required to complete panel 3. Possibly utilising her latest shoot of Estelle. 

'Ailine is having to restructure her first panel, as even though it works really well, one of her models is just not reliable enough. Fortunately, she does a lot of work in general, so she has a lot of work she can go back to in order to re-edit and restructure. This is one of the pitfalls of using models when you are a high school student! Sometimes they are unreliable. 

Danielle is using David Carson as a way of extending her ideas in panel three - pixelation and missing the subject from the typical focal points you would expect to focus on will be something she needs to work on further. 

Hayley has left her blog for a little while, but I know she will very SOON update this and add her second panel to the beautiful collection of photos she already has...

Level three students should by now have sent their file links to me for printing for panels 1 and 2. Ideally we would want to print panel 3 next week. Sticking photos down is a tiresome and time consuming job, now would be a good time to find a friend who wants to help!

Plan for the week

Sorry this took a while, couldn't load the image to begin with...

Where to find your course work and feedback for your class this year:

On our google site:
Book mark this if you haven't already.

If you hover over the NCEA Visual Art levels' 1 - 3 button, you get to see the course outlines drop down. you can select to see one of those there. 

Otherwise, if you want your class page, click on the blue tab directly. it takes you here:

You should all know what line you are in by now. Clicking on the correct line, will take you to your own class resources, including our shared google sheet, which also has your blog addresses on it. Because of the nature of google sites at this point, unless you have editing permissions for the whole page. you will only be able to VIEW this sheet from here. However, you do have it in your google drive in 'shared with me'. 

This is where all the feedback we have talked through in class should be recorded. It means you can always go back to it. Now that you know how to find it, I would like you to make sure you are always act…

End of Term Three

Deadlines for folios are as follows:

Level 1 (1.3) is due 18th October at 4pm

Art Exhibition of student work will be held on Monday 4th November from 5.30pm - 7pm. This is open to everyone. It may not include all of the level 2 folios due to NZQA timelines for moderation, but those not physically present will be represented in a data show.

I will be looking to select one piece of student work for the exhibition invite, which is most likely to be from within the year 12 group.
